One of the better known and most popular beaches of Cyprus, Fig Tree Bay gets its name from the fig tree that provided shade to the locals before the area become popular among tourists. With fine white sand and clear shallow waters, the beach is a favorite of locals on weekends, especially those with young children.

The small rocky island a short distance from the shore and the green-blue waters contribute to the idyllic setting. The beach is well equipped with restaurants and water sports facilities in the heart of Protaras.
